Where do we go from here? Beginning today, right now, once and for all, make a conscientious commitment to put first things first. Jesus Christ!

Watch Full Service

In the literary work, A Tale of Two Cities, author Charles Dickens wrote, “These are the best of times, and they are the worst of times.” Such is our situation today in America. Unprecedented in their nation’s history, a global threat to our physical and economic health is being played out on media outlets that slant the news to serve a covert and separate agenda.

Matthew 6:31-34
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

Psalm 90:12
Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

I. Set Proper Priorities

The first step is about seeking, and if you don’t get this right, everything else will be erased. You make it or break it right here. If your priorities are not in order, your life will not be in order. If your priorities are not right, you won’t be right. The first priority of your life ought to be to seek the King of the Kingdom.

Matthew 6:33
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Psalm 27:4
One thing I ask from the Lord,
this only do I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,
to gaze on the beauty of the Lord
and to seek him in his temple.

Deuteronomy 4:29
But if from there you seek the Lord your God, you will find him if you seek him with all your heart and with all your soul.

II. The Kingdom of God

But not only are we to seek the King, we ought to seek the kingdom. The kingdom of God ought to be the obsession of your life. The word kingdom there literally means rule or reign. A kingdom is a place where a king rules. To seek the kingdom of God is to seek the rule and the reign of God over your entire life. Now when you truly seek a king, and you truly seek His kingdom, you are automatically seeking for three things.

A. First of all, you are seeking for the glory of the king.

B. You are seeking for the guidance of the king.

C. But it also means to seek the government of the king.

Matthew 6:24
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

III. Seek Personal Purity

  1. Faith is always seen by its fruit.
  2. Character is always seen by its conduct.
  3. Devotion is always seen by its discipleship. As we seek the kingdom of God, people ought to be able to see the kingdom in us.

2 Corinthians 5:21
God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

IV. Promised Prosperity

  1. Finances

Mathew 6:19
God made him who had no sin to be sin[a] for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

2. Food

Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

3. Fitness

Matthew 6:27
Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?

4. Fashion

Matthew 6:28
“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin.

You don’t need everything you want.
God doesn’t give us everything we want.
God always gives us what we need.
